Here’s the first trailer for an unusual film musical. London Road is an adaptation of the stage musical that used real interviews with Ipswich townspeople as the basis for songs telling the story of community reaction to the actions Steve Wright, known as the Suffolk Strangler, who murdered five prostitutes in 2006. In other words, this is really heavy stuff, but told in a way that initially seems to contradict the weighty material.
Directed by Rufus Norris (Broken), the film features the acclaimed original stage cast, adds Olivia Colman, and also counts Tom Hardy amongst its roster. (Hardy only has one number in the film, so you won’t see him much in this marketing.) Check out the terrific London Road trailer below. Read More »

Each new dose of Mad Max: Fury Road footage (like this week’s trailer) has only upped our amazement that a film like this can even come out of a major studio in 2015, and the film is lodged firmly atop our collective “most anticipated of the summer” list. If the film lives up to the promise of this early footage, and audiences respond, we might see star Tom Hardy return for several more runs as Max. He revealed in an interview that he is signed for three more Mad Max sequels. Read More »

Warner Bros. opens Mad Max: Fury Road in just six weeks, and the studio is experimenting with reminding us all that the movie looks totally insane, as if there was any chance we’d forget it after that first footage. So here are a few very short Mad Max: Fury Road teasers / TV spots. Mostly, they re-contextualize footage we’ve already seen, though eagle-eyed viewers will notice a handful of new shots. We’re excited to see more from the film, but at this point we’re ready for the whole thing. 2014 feels like it is already racing by like a post-apocalyptic convoy but still, May can’t get here fast enough.

As if we weren’t already eager enough to see Mad Max: Fury Road, there’s now the assurance that, unlike so many other recent sequels to series born in the ’70s and ’80s, this one will be rated R. In addition, there is a new Japanese trailer for the film, with a YouTube page that features a title that translates to something terrific: Mad Max: Anger of Death Road. Now that’s a movie I want to see. (Even if that is Google’s translation, rather than a proper conversational one.) Read More »

Time will tell whether Mad Max: Fury Road is actually any good, but we can say right now that the trailers for it are excellent. Each one seems weirder and wilder than the last, promising the kind of idiosyncratic vision we rarely see from big studio productions.
George Miller returns to direct, while Tom Hardy takes over Mel Gibson’s old role as Max Rockatansky. Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, and Hugh Keays-Byrne also star. Watch the Mad Max Fury Road international trailer after the jump.

Tom Hardy has never met an accent he didn’t like, whether it’s Bostonian in The Drop, Welsh in Locke, or whatever the hell he’s doing in The Dark Knight Rises. In his new movie Child 44, he gets to take midcentury Russian out for a spin.
Directed by Daniel Espinosa (Safe House), the thriller follows police agent Leo Demidov (Hardy) in Soviet-era Russia. When he begins investigating a serial killer who targets young boys, he attracts the wrath of the state, which refuses to acknowledge the crimes at all.
Noomi Rapace plays Leo’s wife Raisa, Gary Oldman is General Mikhail Nesterov, and Joel Kinnaman is Leo’s rival. Jason Clarke, Paddy Considine, and Vincent Cassel also star. Watch the Child 44 trailer after the jump. Read More »
UPDATE: Jake Gyllenhaal has passed on Suicide Squad. Original story follows with update below.
That Suicide Squad cast just got a hair less impressive. Tom Hardy has dropped out of the film, leaving his role as leader Rick Flagg up for grabs. The Mad Max and Inception actor was set to co-star with Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, Jai Courtney and Cara Delevingne in the DC Comics adaptation, written and directed by David Ayer.
Despite Hardy’s exit, everything on the film is still on schedule. It’ll shoot this Spring aimed at an August 5, 2016 release date. Still, a replacement for Hardy is needed, and fast. In a very cool twist of events, apparently Ayer is looking at Jake Gyllenhaal to replace Hardy. Read more about the Jake Gyllenhall Tom Hardy Suicide Squad news below.

Mad Max: Fury Road looks absolutely crazy, and a new batch of images only fuels our curiosity about the movie. The film landed in the number-one spot of my most-anticipated list for 2015, in part because we don’t often see films like this from any source, much less from a major studio. This looks like an old Heavy Metal comic come to life, and early test screening reports describe a movie that is almost all action, with very limited dialogue. Given how great the action looks in this case, we’ll all for it. Check out a handful of new Mad Max Fury Road images below. Read More »
